look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very nice clear golden yellow and has puffy white head. On the nose there are scents of pine needles, citrus fruit,flowers, hops, spices, and dry malt. On palate...a citrusy fruity hops and a nice biscuity malt flavor going on. Crisp...really enjoyed this one.

Serving type: on-tap

Kölsch
Victory Brewing Company
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.60 %

LOOK: Clear golden color, with a foam cap and leaving plenty of lacing.

SMELL: Distinct lager yeast smell, grass, cooked veggies, stewed hops, fresh bread and a bit buttery as well.

TASTE: Clean bready malt flavor like a typical German Kolsch. Herbal tea like hopping with mild grassy, leafy flavor and bitterness. Bready, well balanced, very lightly bitter lager.

FEEL: Light bodied, stinging carbonation. Light, easy to drink , very mellow.

OVERALL: A pretty nice kolsch, but does not separate itself from many others in the style. Pretty standard, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Varga Bar in Philly on 8/3/12, served in a shaker.

Pour: Completely clear yellow orange with a finger and a half white head.

Smell: Grassy hops with a light caramel sweetness. Not very substantial on the nose.

Taste: Bready malts sweetness to the max, with a pleasant floral and grassy hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: Really light and drinkable, but still packed with flavor. Very, very refreshing.

Overall: My first kolsch and I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in Downingtown, PA

A: half finger head on a clear straw colored body. Scattered lacing.

S: grain and pale malts with slight sweet corn. Light aroma overall.

T: very nice grain and pale malt flavor with perfect degree of bitterness. Corn but not sweet notes. Light earthy hop character late in the finish.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: very clean and drinkable. This is a generally dull category but this one is about as flavorful and clean as the style gets.

Serving type: on-tap
